"More Modern Büyükçekmece, Happier People from Büyükçekmece."
Büyükçekmece is well-known on account of its agricultural and tourist potential. It developed rapidly in the 1980s and its population grew day by day.
From 1994 onwards great efforts were made in terms of urban planning (sewage network, decontamination facilities, parks, monitoring of the environment, overhead energy and telecommunication networks placed underground, lighting systems etc.). Büyükçekmece has thus become a modern district.
Büyükçekmece Municipality has organised dazzling cultural activities and projects in co-operation with the European Union and other institutions.
